THE WEEKEND GUIDE FOR LAKE COUNTRY

AND THE GREATER WAUKESHA COUNTY AREA HAS ARRIVED

FILLED WITH THINGS TO DO THIS WEEKEND WITH KIDS!!

PLEASE THANK OUR WEEKEND GUIDE SPONSOR: 

Happy weekend! Hopefully, the weather people are wrong and we won’t get nearly as much rain as they are predicting. There’s too much fun to be had outside! 

Have you gotten to swim in a pool or go to the beach yet? It’s been soo unseasonably cool. We’re planning on getting on the lake, fingers crossed that it finally gets warm and the rain stays away! Wondering where to have all the summer fun around here? Find the pools, beaches, lakes, and beer gardens all in one place bookmarked in our SUMMER PAGE to find everything summer related in Lake Country – including our SUMMER BINGO CARD! Print it out today and bring to Hartland Kids Day

Looking for a laugh…check out our Facebook funny of the week HERE😂 

There’s a little bit of something for everyone, going on this weekend – so many festivals, beer gardens, fireworks, and more! Find all the details below and in our FREE SUMMER FUN GUIDE.

Lastly, Lake Country Family Fun did our research, like we do, and found all the {other} fun things for you and your family to do this weekend, too.
